About the Project

Purpose Capital worked with EcoSpark, an environmental charity, in 2013 to develop a robust business model for Nature Academy, a social enterprise that offers professional development (PD) and coaching to high school science and geography teachers to help them bring local outdoor environmental education to their students. EcoSpark’s Nature Academy ensures that teachers have knowledge, skills and support needed to effectively integrate environmental education into every day curriculum. The Academy will provide its customers with in-person PD courses and remote coaching support. Start-up funds were secured based on the business model and the Academy was launched in 2014.
